    I have been working at Drake International full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The diversity of the work and flexibility to manage the workload. Great team from coast-to-coast and around the world allows for the benefit of best practice sharing and growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Not enough hours in the day. There is always something to do and for those of us that like to finish our plate, it makes it difficult to cross everything off the list. This could perhaps be part of the pro section as well!

    I have been working at Drake International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great team, great visibility and people committed to the branch success. We have room to take some initiatives.

    Cons

    Salary couldn't be less. Their variable compensation system is absolutely ridiculous and based on old business models. We attain objectives, but don't get the bonuses for reasons like "you didn't spend enough" which makes it frustrating for competitive employee.

    Drake International Response

    May 10, 2018CEO

    Thank you for taking the time to post a comment on Glassdoor. As a new CEO it is a great source of feedback from the recruiter community. Unfortunately, your departure was two months before my arrival. Since that time we have increased the salaries of our recruitment team, and implemented a new commission plan based on personal production. From a systems perspective we are about to launch a new website, ATS and ERP system. We've read the comments on Glassdoor, studied our exit interviews and completed an employee engagement survey. Now we are working hard to make Drake a great place to work. Thanks. Chris
